Basketball: Klay Thompson’s Late Rally Keeps Warriors Season’s Alive

share on:

Oklahoma City Thunder were on the verge of ruining Golden State Warriors shot at a back-to-back trophy, but Klay Thompson came to party and made them feel the heat.

OKC lost 108-101 at home to GSW, blowing another shot at winning the Western Conference finals, as a fourth quarter rally from the Dubs forced game 7.

Thunder tried their possible best to seal the series and set up a final with last season’s finalists, Cleveland Cavaliers, with Kevin Durant scoring 29 points, and Russell Westbrook got 28 points, he was close to getting a triple-double (28 points, 11 rebounds, 9 assists).

However, GSW were not going to give up the series without a fight, as the Splash brothers brought it in the final quarter, and bring it they did.

Thompson sunk a playoffs record 11 three-pointers – including a go-ahead bucket with 90 seconds remaining – on his way to scoring 41 points, while Curry nearly had a triple double himself, finishing with 29 points, 10 rebounds, and 9 assists.

On the back of a Curry three, they tied the game 99-all with just under three minutes to play, before going on to ensure their title defence, which included a record 73 wins in the regular season, is not over.

Thompson outscored the whole Thunders team in the fourth quarter, scoring 19 points to their 18 points.
